  • Can you tell me what this number means "-23"?

    I cannot believe this, or that no one is talking about this number!

    PF--------PA------Net Pts
    363------386------"-23"

    But as you can clearly see now it is our total net points for the season. We are negative 23 total points.

    That means we have allowed more points then we have scored, and yet we are 8-7.

    I think that speaks volumes for the type of defense we have, and how Eli has kept us in the hunt all season.

    Only positive we have now, is that the defense finally played a complete game during week 17. Hopefully that was our spring board for the defense as it was for our SB run on Offense towards the end of that season as well.
    Peace,

    I don't think it's a very relevant stat.

    All points are relative to the team you're playing. If one week NO happens to drop a zillion points on you that's just one game. It doesn't say much about how your team has played all year.

      I was going to say Micheal Jordan but.....Thats not good, we have won game by very little margin (beside the jets and first iggle games) and lost games by a considerable margin (Saints, Skins games)

For 4 or even 8 games can be a small sample size, and can be skewed based on what you have said, and considering we did play some of the offensive power houses this year if not top 4 or 5 out of the league.

          Yet we did also allow the skins team to score a bit on us to name one team, and we also allowed many a times for teams to drive and score with under 2 minutes to go before end of the half or game. So with a larger sample size I give it a bit more credence.

              I don't think the larger sample size makes a difference. The giants have specific defensive gameplans for each team. It's not like they're sending out the same exact defense every game.

              But to be fair, I'm awaiting a not-so-hot grade from my college statistics course, so I might not have any f-ing clue what i'm talking about!

                Trouble is Eli and the offense have not played well the last 2 weeks. We are going to need everyone playing their best if we are to make some noise this year.

                  Don Mattingly.....But seriously it makes sense because we have lost a couple games by a good amount,the New Orleans game comes to mind where most of the games we have won have been last minute close games.

                    this is the positive im waiting for. if the Giants make the playoffs with the defense improving on last weeks numbers and play, they could be a very very dangerous team.

                      The only stat that matters is W-L. The Packers have given up more yards then they have gained.

                          That stat is very deceiving because as many yards as they give up and as bad as that defense is considered they do get a lot of turnovers!

                            -23

                            it means we either get blown out or claw ourselves out with a small margin of victory.

                            but if the D can step it up for the playoffs we have
                            a chance because except for the 'niners ;nobody else in the NFC plays defense either.

                              [/quote]actually yards don't matter, but points do. Do you want to give up 400 yards a game or 40 its per game? 400 yards per game or 20 its per game? 200 yards a game or 30 pts?
